snow

Finally got my plow truck inspected, needed new steering damper, plate light, also spent a couple of hours cleaning the front end and painting it with chassis saver paint. Just snowed last night due to the latest nor-easter. never did get my snowplow on the truck. It should melt by this weekend I hope.

Pulled the old '71 Camaro out to run around the block and warm things up. Then tore into the '69 Suburban to fix a cracked T stat housing. Some bozo tried to modify it internally by chipping off the inside lip for the O ring seal. Had to replace it with a good one I had laying around.
Then put a gauge set in the Burb, and called it a day. Gotta get the Austin gasser out for a run tomorrow. Sounds like it might be cool and dry, so gotta drive every good day I can!

Cut out the exhaust in my caddy. Everything back from where the two sides of the manifolds come together is gone. Back of the Y pipe. I sort of mocked up the new exhaust. It is just a simple cheap system so I can get the car on the road. I am putting on a thrush glasspack and then a turndown in front of the rear wheel. At least that is my current plan. It is not a long term solution, but will get me through till I can put a real exhaust, preferably a dual exhaust system.

How did you get roller rockers under those valve covers? Or are they just roller tip rockers? Had to take thos covers off my 327 when I went rollers; no clearance.

roller rockers on the "Acadian".

I tried full roller rockers but as mentioned no clearance so swithed with another small block I just built cause I wanted the period correct Vette covers over the normal chrome ones I had, was worth the Hp loss, not much around 3hp. Just did a quick video of it, kind of dark but not used to videos.
